Hi there, has April been treating you well this year? We’ve had beautiful sunny days so far and trees have already started to blossom, what’s not to love about spring! Let me show you the products that kept me in a good mood throughout the past month.
I’m usually more of a bronzer gal, but this gorgeous Catrice Illuminating Blush in shade Kiss me Ken 030 caught my attention and convinced me to start using my blushes again (and buy some new ones, too!). This one was actually a freebie from the Slovene L&Z magazine, I instantly fell in love with its two pink undertones and a touch of shimmer. It works great on its own or just as a highlighter. ♦ The next product I’m really glad I managed to get is the L’Occitane rose scented Shea Butter Ultra Soft Balm. This was an exclusive product available around the International Women’s Day aiming to support women in developing countries. The scent is quite powerful, so I don’t use it on my lips very often, but it works great on my still-trying-to-get-over-winter hands. I wish similar products were available for every special occasion! ♦ As for the lips, I had to perk up my days with the most bright lipstick from my collection! There is hardly anything more pigmented and long lasting than the Mac Ruby Woo. I’ve had it for ages (and should have thrown it away already), but still amazes me every single time I put it on. And I always get tons of compliments, so I must be doing it right!
Now, I have to mention one of my favorite fragrances of all times. My boyfriend got me this Coco Mademoiselle edt by Chanel a few years back and I did like it at the time. It just seemed to me that this powerful and long-lasting woody fragrance with an insane wear time is meant for a bit older women, but I nevertheless used it a lot. These days, however, I’m obsessed with it! I don’t know what happened to my nose, but these citrus, white floral and sweet notes suddenly feel so feminine… There is very little left in the bottle, but I’ll cherish it until its last drop! ♦ Last but not least, I’ve always adored crystals and gems, and not so much for their healing properties, which may be controversial to a lot of people, but because they’re just beautiful. I finally got myself a bigger amethyst crystal, which plays the role of the most important decoration on my table at the moment!
